No Free Ride

A justice of the Washington State Supreme Court was accused of misconduct in visiting a Special Commitment Center (SCC") and having contacts with residents who had cases pending before his court. He contended that he was entitled to representation at public expense both at the hearing stage and on appeal. The Washington Court of Appeals Division II (Seinfeld, J.) held that the justice would have to pay for whatever justice he could obtain in the matter. (Mike Frisch)
